The issue in the West though is while the pandemic hasn’t left, nobody seems to care anymore. “My body, my right” as an excuse to not wear a mask. Many believe it’s a hoax. Others think it’s overblown as a risk. Society is demanding to reopen virus be damned. The feeling is to get the virus and get it over with and that it is inevitable. And to be honest, most of us are “virused out” and tired of all this.
In the beginning 75% of people were wearing a mask in the grocery store, now it’s down to about 20% to my eye.
